mNSE {hydroGOF} | R Documentation |

Modified Nash-Sutcliffe efficiency between `sim`

and `obs`

, with treatment of missing values.

mNSE(sim, obs, ...) ## Default S3 method: mNSE(sim, obs, j=1, na.rm=TRUE, ...) ## S3 method for class 'data.frame' mNSE(sim, obs, j=1, na.rm=TRUE, ...) ## S3 method for class 'matrix' mNSE(sim, obs, j=1, na.rm=TRUE, ...) ## S3 method for class 'zoo' mNSE(sim, obs, j=1, na.rm=TRUE, ...)

`sim` |
numeric, zoo, matrix or data.frame with simulated values |

`obs` |
numeric, zoo, matrix or data.frame with observed values |

`j` |
numeric, with the exponent to be used in the computation of the modified Nash-Sutcliffe efficiency. The default value is |

`na.rm` |
a logical value indicating whether 'NA' should be stripped before the computation proceeds. |

`...` |
further arguments passed to or from other methods. |

*
mNSE = 1 - ( sum( abs(obs - sim)^j ) / sum( abs(obs - mean(obs))^j )*

When `j=1`

, the modified NSeff is not inflated by the squared values of the differences, because the squares are replaced by absolute values.

Modified Nash-Sutcliffe efficiency between `sim`

and `obs`

.

If `sim`

and `obs`

are matrixes, the returned value is a vector, with the modified Nash-Sutcliffe efficiency between each column of `sim`

and `obs`

.

`obs`

and `sim`

has to have the same length/dimension

The missing values in `obs`

and `sim`

are removed before the computation proceeds, and only those positions with non-missing values in `obs`

and `sim`

are considered in the computation
